RTW takes effect Thursday; wear RED

From MEA’s “Capitol Comments” – 3/25/13

Numerous activites are being planned for Thursday to coincide with the official implementation of Michigan's so-called "right-to-work" law. Whether they're able to attend any of the events or not,

MEA members are encouraged to WEAR RED on Thursday.

The “We Are Michigan Coalition” (of which MEA is a part) will hold an event that morning to hold Snyder accountable for his attacks on Michigan's middle class and his dramatic reversal of his position on right-to-work.

MEA members and retirees who are able to attend should plan on arriving at the Detroit Athletic Club, 241 Madison St. in Detroit, by 7 a.m. Click here to RSVP.

In addition, the Michigan State AFL-CIO is holding events throughout the state on Thursday to raise awareness about how right-to-work will harm middle-class families. The events include candlelight vigils, marches, community forums and more. Click here to find an event near you.

Remember: The battle is far from over. Right-to-work is temporary. Solidarity is forever.
